Bratton 6 Hour Time Challenge
How many half mile laps or 1.5 mile laps can you run in 6 hours?
Do I have run for six hours?
Of course not, you can walk, jog or run as many laps as you like. Turn up anytime between 10am- 4pm and complete a minimum of 1 lap to receive a medal.
Can I have a break in between laps?
Yes, feel free to have a break whenever you get back to start/finish area. Whether it be a short drinks break, lunch & a beer in the sports club or a picnic whilst watching the runners come through, don’t feel you are in a rush, just enjoy the day.
Are you allowed to run with dogs?
Yes that is fine providing they are on a lead and you clear up after them.
Do I have to be quick to take part?
Not at all, we encourage runners of all abilities to take part. This is fun charity event with no winners & losers; just like minded individuals pushing their boundaries trying to achieve personal goals.
Can we enter as a team?
Yes, although enter online as individuals and then let us know on the day what team you are part of. (Please note only one member of a team can run at any one time)
Are children allowed to run?
Most definitely, this event is for everyone! What made last year, was the sight of adults & children running & chatting together with smiles on their faces.
What is the terrain like?
The course is grass/trail and is undulating. Trail shoes are recommended if wet although road shoes will be fine if dry.
